As a youth, each Sunday, Dawn went to church and

Paid her respects and not to mention was a virgin

Kid pushed up, Dawn lettin' him

Since he made her laugh and all the other girls was sweatin' him

Then things started to move without cause

And a couple o' months later kid's pushin' for the drawers

Under pressure while exchangin' glances

Dawn finally gives in to the sexual advances

Although it was a mad high cost for her

?Cuz after the thrill was gone, so was the lust for her

Eventually he left her for another

Now feeling alone and betrayed by her lover

She cried for no longer knew which way she headed

Once dreamed of actually wearing white at her wedding

And really being pure, now she thought she'd die without

Still she finds strength to continue with her life without

Love

Without love

Without love

Without love

Verse two of Dawn's life the second segment

What could be worse than to now find out you're pregnant?

Poor Dawn couldn't sleep laid awake

Not ready for a child and plus her mother's gonna break

As she doesn't know how she's gonna bring up the subject

Consequences of being used as an object

In church though time's runnin' thin

She decides to have the child because the doesn't want to sin

Props to the girl although it hit hard times

It was hell finishin' school and working part-time

Yet Dawn did it though her youth went to waste

Little help from the government, she got her own place

Hard for an independent woman and a kid

And as soon as she could get off the assistance, she did

Without no man who she once thought she'd die without

Still she finds the strength to continue with her life without

Love

Life without love

Life without love

Continue with her life without love

While Dawn worked two jobs tryin' to meet ends

Her son was busy cuttin' school and hangin' with his friends

So when she got words she tried to slap out the taste in his mouth

And explain how important education is

Under stress, she takes two bufferin'

Son now tired of seein' his poor mother sufferin'

Starts to sell drugs though the cops did a raid

Guess who's in the mix, and being legal age

Could do time, please call her employer

To inform her that her son is gonna' need a lawyer

Never no good news, just more strife

Dawn barely havin' enough time to live her own life

Here's the judge's sentence, beggin' and pleadin'

Now spends nine hours on the bus to go and see him

Here's the judge's sentence, beggin' and pleadin'

Now spends nine hours on the bus to Goa and see him

Without no man who she once thought she'd die without

Still she finds the strength to continue with her life without

Love

Life without love

Life without love

Life without love

Continues life without love
